  The following list of DVDs happen to be

I still need to add my reviews etc.

I try to conquer my fears with things like self-defense (armed/unarmed combat training) which is all some people see of me but
this is that which is closest to my heart.

Marcia Haydee and Richard Cragun dance the Balcony Scene from John Cranko's version of "Romeo and Juliet". Filmed for German television in the 1970's. Music by Sergei Prokofiev. Stuttgart Ballet Company.  Even for someone like me who has seen hundereds of ballets, this is stunning, my favorite choreography and moving.  Haydee and Cragun's artistry and technique is unbelieveable!!

Zeferelli's Romeo and Juliet (1968), death scene
(I would have started the clip a little earlier - perhaps I'll be able to do that later)

my little prologue to this movie with Nino Rota's music from Zeferelli's movie :)

Cyrano de Bergerac's death scene
There is no story which is so close to my life and if I was ever lucky in life...I fear that it will be more like Romeo and Juliet
(I should download and re-subtitle it)

"Ma chère, ma chérie, [My dear, my beloved, ]
"Mon trésor..." [my treasure...]

ROXANE, rêveuse [dreaming]
D'une voix... [With a voice..]

"Mon amour..." [My love...]

D'une voix... [With a voice..]
Elle tressaille. [she quivers]
Mais... que je n'entends pas pour la première fois ! [But... this is the first time I've ever heard it read!]
Elle s'approche tout doucement, sans qu'il s'en aperçoive, passe derrière le fauteuil se penche sans bruit, regarde la lettre. - L'ombre augmente. [She comes close slowly, without him noticing, goes behind his chair, and without a sound looks at the letter . - Darkness increases.]

"Mon coeur ne vous quitta jamais une seconde, [my heart never left you even for one second]
"Et je suis et serai jusque dans l'autre monde [and I am and will be in another world]
"Celui qui vous aima sans mesure, celui..." [He who loved you beyond measure, the one...]
